Photo description:

A capulana is a length of cotton fabric, about 2 meters by 1 meter dyed in vibrant colors and with particular patterns and drawings. It can either be used as a wrap-around skirt or become a baby carrier on the back. Sometimes it is used also on the head, like a veil . It is worn in Mozambique and everywhere in southern Africa. Capulana is an important piece of women clothing and used in important occasions and also in everyday life.

O colorido a contrastar com o cinzento do ambiente tem um impacto tremendo.
Maravilha de foto!

Não conhecia ainda esta. Está uma maravilha esta luz e o enquadramento que nos faz perceber de imediato o ambiente de vida da criança.
